Software :: XMing Clipboard: Can't Copy And Paste To Windows
I am using XMing+Putty to access a Linux machine from an XP32 machine. I can copy text from windows and paste it to Linux fine, but I can't copy from Linux and paste to Windows consistently. If I try several times (or hold down the paste keystroke) it will eventually paste; sometimes several times!
I would like to improve the consistency of my Linux to Window pastes. I have per-mutated every combo of Clipboard and Clipboard2. I can not edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf like some other fixes suggest. I have been informed the Linux admins will not allocate resources to resolve this problem in the near future so any fixes need to be Windows side or able to be done without root/admin privileges.

General :: UNIX - Copy And Paste Between Different Bash Windows With Files Opend With VI?
Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?
I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.
And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.
Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Copy To Clipboard From Remote Desktop Viewer In 10.10
Just installed 10.10 32-bit on a Lenovo T61p laptop, and used Remote Desktop Viewer (version 2.3.2) to VNC into another system. I can copy from an application on 10.10 and then paste into a window in the VNC connection (e.g. to xterm or emacs), but I cannot do the reverse. When I try to paste, I get garbage displayed. For example, I selected "ls -l" from an xterm, which should have copied to the clipboard. When I paste this into an e-mail message, I get junk.
Here is what Emacs in hexl-mode says about that text:
7852 3109 05 xR1..
It shows as "xR1" some whitespace and then a tiny graphical box symbol with 00 and 05 in it. I'll try to paste it on the next line: Is this a known bug? Is there a workaround? Another app I can use?
This same VNC connection works fine, when I use 10.04.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use Remote Desktop Viewer To See The Desktop On A Windows XP Machine?
I have my main box, Ubuntu 10.04lts, and I am trying to use remote desktop viewer to see the desktop on a Windows XP machine. The machines are side by side The Ubuntu box is hardwired to my network router, and the XP machine is connected via wireless. Both get to the internet fine, and I can ping the Ubuntu box from the XP box. But, I cannot ping the XP box from the Ubuntu box, and Remote Desktop Viewer won't establish a connection to the VNC server I have running on the XP box.

Software :: Remote Desktop And Multiple Desktop Windows
I have VMware server installed on this machine. I also have a Windows XP VM running all the time. I have it bridged so it gets a valid IP from my router and such and is in my network. I use KRDC to remote desktop to it and I make it full screen. However if I want to go back to my desktop I have to minimize KRDC.
Is there a RPD client out there I can use so I can go full screen on 1 desktop and have everything else on another desktop then use KDE's Desktop switcher or ctrl+alt+arrow keys to switch between desktops to flip between Windows XP and Linux without having to minimize?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Copy/Paste - Garble ?
I am experiencing an issue where the first time I copy and paste it works fine. But after that it just pastes garble. I've installed glipper and if I clear the clipboard after every copy/paste its fine.
At first I upgraded from 10.04 and this came up so I thought I would just do a clean install of 10.10. It was still happening.

Ubuntu :: Copy & Paste Not Working?
I can't copy & paste text from an Evolution email message without first pasting the text into an editor like gedit or a word processor and recopying it a second time... Then it works fine... I thought the problem may have been a Delphi forum specific problem, but it also does the same thing on this board...
I running 10.04 with the default Evolution mail program.
BTW on Delphi I can turn off the wysiwyg editor and paste as "source" and it works just fine without the paste and recopy step...

Ubuntu :: Best Remote For Windows Desktop Support
I know I can use Terminal Server RDP v5 to do remote desktop support for Windows boxes - but would like to use something that is easier to use - for the Windows user. Is there a package that allows the user to sign onto a web site and then I can take over their Windows box using my Ubuntu box? Or is there something else as simple without me having to walk them through finding their IP, making sure their firewall isn't blocking me, etc. etc. I would love to show my clients that I can do almost everything with Linux instead of Windows.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop / X Windows / Low Graphics
I'm trying to set up a machine without a monitor. It has a video card in it but it won't have a monitor connected.Basically I want to press the button on the front, it boots up and I can remote desktop onto it from my main machine. I'm assuming this means it needs X.The problem I have is that with no monitor attached, it boots but complains about "low graphics". I only see this complaint after I re-connect the monitor cable. My remote desktop from the other machine works fine until I come to shut it down whereupon it just sits there presumably waiting on the display that's not connected for someone to fix the low graphics "problem."
Is there a way to stop it moaning about low graphics? Or, better yet, have a machine without a video card at all yet still be able to remote desktop onto it? Is there some kind of virtual framebuffer version of X I could use that would allow this?

Ubuntu :: Opera Copy And Paste In To Thunderbird?
Whenever I try to copy and paste something from Opera to Thunderbird (or FireFox) the copied text does not appear when I select paste. (or control V) My work around is to place the copied text into a empty document, re-highlight, copy and then the paste into Thunderbird will work.
Opera Version: 10.61 Build 6430
System x86_64, 2.6.32-24-generic

Ubuntu :: Copy And Paste Does Not Work Much Of The Time
In Ubuntu, why does copy and past not work for most applications. I can't tell you how many times I have copied some text and went to a new application and Past is greyed out. For example, in Firefox I can highlight some text like "Belmont Diner", then right click and choose "Copy". Then go up to the Google search bar and right click and Paste is not an option. I have tried doing this using Crtl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. It does not work...most of the time. Every once in a while it will but most of the time it does not. I can repeat the action to make sure I really copied the data and still no luck. Sometimes it works but many times it does not.
